THE SURVIVOR

David Hemmings, Australia, 1981, Severin Films

“A calculated yet genuinely compelling thriller, one as interested in interrogating the wracked psyches of its characters as it is in delivering forms of genre convention.” -- Gregory Joseph, Letterboxd

When a 747 crashes in a Sydney suburb -- a still-spectacular sequence that helped make this the most expensive Australian film of its time -- the inferno kills everyone on board except the pilot (Robert Powell, TOMMY), who emerges from the wreckage miraculously unscathed. As a local psychic (Jenny Agutter, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) communicates with the doomed passengers’ spirits, a nightmare of madness, murder and supernatural horror is unlocked. In his final film performance, Hollywood legend Joseph Cotten co-stars in this shocker directed by British film icon David Hemmings (BLOW-UP, DEEP RED) and produced by Ozploitation maverick Antony I. Ginnane (THIRST, PATRICK, TURKEY SHOOT).
